I'm 26 and swinging into panic quite rapidly . My neighbors, a couple who were 26-27 at the time, also bought a boat, ran away from work and sailed till the money ran out. Guess I'll have to paint my boat red and shiny to be different
I must move to NZ and/or Australia (but I think NZ) as soon as possible!!! Not because LoTR was filmed there, either, but because when I was in NZ & Aus, both countries felt like home to me in a way that the US never has. Since I've been back in the States (almost a year & a half) I've felt desperate to go back home... to NZ & Australia. Anyway, to bring this sort of back on topic, I feel that being here, unhappy, is aging me!
...Come over here to Perth! I must warn you thought, the Demon of Winter is rubbing it's fingers together roaring "Mwuuuaahhahahaha!" as it prepares to strike with all it's chilliness!
Thank you for your offer! Even though I've just suffered through my own Northern Hemisphere winter, if it meant moving to the Southern Hemisphere, I'd skip summer & go straight for another winter. If I have my geography correct, Perth is a wee bit far from Australia Zoo, & from NZ, but it's a heck of a lot closer than New Jersey, USA is! Am saving my pennies...
But I feel 20 lol! It's makes me feel old though to know that I've been a fan of the films since my freshman year in college....
My hubby just turned 31 last week. The funny thing about us though is if he wore a clean shaven face, we'd both still pass for highschool! In a way it's a good thing, but it get's annoying when you're still asked "Just how old are you?" Especially when yer toting around a 3-year-old. ;)
I'll be 32 on June 7th, but I've had that problem of being mistaken for younger for years. In fact, a couple of years ago, I got carded at a bar for ordering a sparkling water. The guy I just started a relationship with thought I was a few years younger than him, but I'm really two years older.
I'm sure I'll appreciate looking younger than my age as I get older. It can be hard when people mistake me for being a teenager. Sometimes they don't take me very seriously because of that, not realizing that I'm highly educated and I've experienced a great many things that some people twice my age haven't done. But then, it gives me a great deal of empathy for teens and how people will often assume the worst of them without really giving them a chance to show who they really are.
Age is really relative. I don't feel particularly old, and I don't feel particularly young. I think the most important thing is whether you feel good in your skin or not. I know I'm much happier with myself at almost 32 than I was when I was 16.
